Read by Octavia Spencer, Bahni Turpin and Jenna Lamia.

In Jackson, Mississippi, in 1962, there are lines that are not crossed. But, suddenly, three women, Aibileen, Minny, and Skeeter, realize that they are suffocating within the lines. Aibileen is a black maid, raising her seventeenth white child. Her best friend, Minny, is the sassiest woman in Mississippi. And Skeeter Phelan is just back from college, a white woman with a degree but, to her mother's chagrin, no ring on her finger. With the civil rights movement exploding all around them, these women start a movement of their own, forever changing a town and the lives of the women in it.

Best audiobook I've ever listened to

This book is amazing, but listening to it on audiobook is even better than reading it. The women reading this just bring it to life. The accents, intonation and inflection of the readers' voices just amazed me. I could not wait to listen to this. Just incredible.

Amazing and perspective taking

Amazing story.

It is does get irritating to see those who are in power take so much advantage of it.

Good listen

I really enjoyed listing to this

Great audio book!

This is the best reading of an audio book that I've ever heard. All the narrators are wonderful, and really bring the characters to life. I read the book first, but have really enjoyed listening to the audio book. Highly recommend it!

listening is a great way to read this book!

The story is amazing and very moving. It really makes you think. The characters get under your skin and you really start to care about them (or in some cases, really dislike them and wish they could be redeemed!).

I listened to the book on CD, and believe this was a good choice. The narrators are all distinctive and convey their main characters well. Plus, in my experience it's easier to listen to dialect than to read it (and this story has plenty of it).
